Surprised to see someone on the water so early just gone 8am my eyes were open but I was not necessarily awake, but it was blowing then, by the time we got on the water a little later the wind was dying off so ended up playing about underpowered .

Met up with beach addict for a sail at Poole but the wind did not pick up till lunch time when he had to leave, nice to catch up for a chat.. The wind didn't settle down in the afternoon with some pretty big gusts & some pretty big holes, while it was blowing it was real good fun, dispite being a bit nippy, but hey the sun was shining.

With the wind forecast looking good for a few days of westerly's myself and the usual suspects headed to North Devon Westward Ho, Thursday looked most suitable a steady 20mph wind. As the tide was out in the morning we decided to go out on speedsails & my new toy a blokart, I rigged my 3m and it was blistering fast over the flat sand & turns on a dime, absolutely great fun. I came in and rigged my windsurfing equipment ready for the afternoon session, unfortunately after a few runs the wind died & it was short lived.

The high pressure system & glorious sunshine Shone away any hope's of windsurfing. A good turnout being joined by a number of like minded guests which not only boosted the numbers but made the weekend extremely entertaining , with everyone managing to do there own different activities from surfing, speedsailing, cycling, mountain boarding, fishing, canoeing, site seeing & walking, there was plenty to talk about around the evening BBQ/ fire, of course the traditional pub crawl had to be done as well, all came back with a good suntan , some sleep deprivation & a big grin.

Sunny & warm but absolutely horrendous wind conditions , massive gusts followed by big holes, after an hour of that my arms and body were flagging, then it just blew it's socks off and any one on the water with it, unfortunately I ended up on the opposite side of the water to the car park, decided it would be a long walk back, the chop bouncing off the wall was making it pretty hard, until the rescue boat offered me a very welcome lift back. A bit disappointing but I knew I would of been kicking myself if I did not go.

Most guys were out on 7.0 m so I decided to rig my 6.0 m and gamble on an increase, I did not have to wait long, a strong warm wind, the sun shining, warm waters, happy days, after a while I was getting over powered on my 106 changed boards to my 102 which is more suitable for the choppy conditions ( and has a lot less tendency to play submarines due to increase nose rocker). I also managed to meet up with Paul c which completed the day well.

Warm sunny conditions and a lot more wind than expected, so time to get to grips with my small kit, a change of mast and different fin helped a lot but the 10 mph fluctuating wind strength did'nt make it any easier and was the difference between planing and sinking still good fun though. Managed to meet up with Carl and Mark which made the day even more enjoyable.

An enjoyable sail in the bright sunshine warm and windy conditions, a little up and down at first then as usual the wind kept building until I was eventually overpowered , by that time I had been out for a while and run out of steam, so took the easy way out and called it a day.

Decided to go to Christchurch as the wind direction seemed better, good to see and catch up with the shef family and Carl out for some fun as well. The water was very flat but the wind was pretty gusty, good sail while it lasted then the rain came along and killed the wind.
